72 new students

By | News | No Comments

72 students, pictured below, came today to apply for our next class.  And all of this by word of mouth as we have never advertised the program.  But one parent tells another parent how much the program did for their son or daughter.  Or the students tell their friends.

To put this in perspective, this is twice the size of our last graduating class.  We are thrilled, humbled and excited to see what God will do. With just 3 teachers, the sheer size of the class will be a challenge.  Fortunately, we have returning students (Luis Casas, Agnilio Dilla, Quan Glass, Omar Ibarra, Otim Oloya, Lynn Rossi, Byron Salazar, Jerry Thompson, Christian Tovar) who are volunteer coaches adding to our teaching staff.  What a blessing!

Open House at Our New Facility

By | News | No Comments

Today, we celebrated the opening of our new spacious facility in Gardena.  Thanks to the efforts of Joe Fortunato, Phil Hocking, Ken Johnson and Jim Paul who volunteered countless hours completing the build-out for the school, the facility is ready for our first class of students on October 1.  We no longer have to turn students away just because of the limited space.  We expect over 40 students in our next class.  The photo below shows the new facility with our state of the art fume extraction system, electrical systems customized to our needs and dividing wall.
